Chocolate Cookie Dough Larabars

Posted on

I really like Larabars as snacks, but they are a bit pricey, so I decided to try making them on my own.

These were based on this recipe: Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Larabars.  But I didn’t have chocolate chips, so I improvised and was really happy with how they turned out.  They really did remind me of cookie dough!

Ingredients:
1/2 Cup salted Cashews
1/3 Cup Dates
1/2 tsp. Vanilla
1/2 tsp. Sea Salt
2 tsp. Cocoa Powder
1 Tbsp. Honey

Toss all ingredients into a food processor and blend until finely chopped.  Mine didn’t get at blended as I thought it would, but my food processor isn’t the best.  Take mixture out and form into whatever shape you want.  The original called for bars, but forming them into balls is easier so that is what I went with.  Enjoy!

  1. Yum!! These look delicious, I’ll have to try the recipe. My larabars generally consist of throwing whatever I have laying around into the FP with some dates and hoping it comes out okay, haha.

  2. Haha I think that’s a pretty good strategy.

    And now you have me convinced I need to give in and try brussel sprouts!
